The original Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations helped thousands of churches focus their energy and resources on the most essential elements of ministry. Pastors and everyday disciples learned to chart a path toward greater fruitfulness using a common language that was practical, comprehensible, and effective. Most of the language and examples in the original book relied on attractional assumptions, those that equip congregations to attract people from the outside to attend their services, join in existing ministries, and become members. In recent years, however, our most fruitful congregations have learned that while attractional models are helpful and necessary, they are not enough. Faith communities must also develop ministries based on missional assumptions—efforts that primarily serve people who are not members of the church and may never cross the threshold of a church door.

Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations, Revised and Updated significantly expands the practices and the fruit they bear in communities everywhere. Now, those original come to us ideas are balanced with go to them initiatives. Strategies for doing things better are strengthened with ideas for doing things differently. Doing ministry for shifts to doing ministry with. We learn how to welcome the guest and also how to become the guest among others. We see ways to create ministry inside and outside the walls of the church. This requires a different posture toward our neighborhoods, a deliberate outward focus, and a willingness to carry Christ’s love to where people already live, work, and play, rather than hoping people will come to us. It is practical, nuanced, critically important work, and Robert Schnase expertly shows us how to get started.
